Thread: Battery options
05-25-2011, 07:54 PM #1
Hey guys I will be ordering my new battery and mount for the 15f project in the next week and I need to figure out what to get. I am looking at odyssey and braille so far but I am open to options, it needs to be an AGM and less than 13lbs. Cost does not matter too much but I would like to keep it reasonable (no lithium ~$1200)
The stock battery is a Yuasa YTX20HL-BS
The Odyssey is a pc545
The Braille is a B14115
I am relocating the battery to over the driveshaft because the yellow racing ecu does not fit in the stock location and I will be using the battery box as the new mount for the ecu.
I don't know all that much about batteries so I appreciate all y'all have to offer.

That is all I have ever used in my 12f also, I am just checking to see if something better has come along

You may want to check out DEKA brand as well. They do make an exact replacement for YTX20L BS. It is the same maintenance free sealed type. However, the major difference is that once the voltage drops very low, say < 7 volts. The Yuasa never comes back to life even after 24+ hour charging. The DEKA does amazingly. And I experienced it. Interestingly both are manufactured in Redding, PA.
